Indrė Viltrakytė on How to hunt for beautiful design pieces for homeCOO @ VIETA | co-founder @ Robert KalinkinSome time ago
Here’s another tip - if you’re looking for a specific piece of furniture, search for ir in its country of origin. So, for example, if it’s a Minotti sofa you’re after, try checking ebay.it, if it’s a set of Hans Wegner wishbone chairs, your best bet is sourcing it in Denmark. Oh, and local classifieds sites are pure gold - dba.dk in particular, if you’re into midcentury classics of Wegner, Poul Henningsen, Kai Kristiansen and so on. Translate the whole website with google translate ans search away!

Renovating your home and looking for some unique furniture pieces or beautiful objects? Start with some curated vintage/antique sites where items are already pre-selected (we’ll get to ebay strategies later on). I highly recommend checking selency.co.uk, vinterior.com and pamono.eu . And try searching by materials you love, such as marble, travertine, leather, suede, burr wood or terrazzo, and later narrowingvdown by the type of furniture - you’ll be surprised how many under-the-radar items you can scout this way.

So how exactly to start searching for something unique? The easiest way is to figure out designer names behind those iconic designs you see all over Instagram or Pinterest. For true modernists: Verner Panton, Milo Baughman, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Warren Platner, Marcel Breuer. For mid-century classics (mostly Scandinavian): Eero Saarinen, Ray and Charles Eames, Hand Wegner, Kai Kristiansen, Stilnovo, Charlotte Perriand, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Borge Mogensen, Poul Henningsen, Jean Prouve. For minimalists-at-heart: Isamu Noguchi, Arne Norell, Alvar Aalto, Kaare Klint, Gio Ponti. For those with unlimited budget (or just searching for a true eye-candy): Vladimir Kagan, Vincenzo de Cotiis, Pierre Jeanneret, Pierre Yovanovitch, Pierre Augustin Rose. Try searching for those names in vintage sites (such as Pamono, Vinterior, 1stdibs, etc) or ebay and see if you find something you like - soon enough, you'll know exactly what style is close to your heart and how to look for a more affordable alternative.

QUICK photography TIP - i tried it myself ! 📷 If you are just starting out, want to experiment with photography and don't want to spend a lot of money renting out a studio, i have a simple creative solution for you! 📷 Buy about 3 metres of clothing lining or any other material, use it as a backdrop, invite a friend and (most importantly) have some fun! 📷 Below you'll see a before and after of my own experiment trying out this simple & humble setup! 📷 This shoot made me realise again that photography is not about having the best gear or the most expensive set, but about knowing how to see an opportunity for beauty everywhere and being conscious in capturing it!
